Sustainable Development Goals
What do they mean?
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential.
By denying women equal rights, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit all the world’s citizens.
Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.
Sustainable Cities and Communities
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
The world’s population is constantly increasing.To accommodate everyone, we need to build modern, sustainable cities.
For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilization.The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now.
Through education, innovation and adherence to our climate commitments, we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet.
These changes also provide huge opportunities to modernize our infrastructure which will create new jobs and promote greater prosperity across the globe.
Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
Compassion and a strong moral compass is essential to every democratic society.
Yet, persecution, injustice and abuse still runs rampant and is tearing at the very fabric of civilization.
We must ensure that we have strong institutions, global standards of justice, and a commitment to peace everywhere.
